LAS VEGAS — Robert De Niro recently opened up about his involvement in the upcoming Nobu hotel in Las Vegas in an interview with the Las Vegas-based Review-Journal.
De Niro, a shareholder in Nobu Hospitality — famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s restaurant and entertainment company — has been heavily involved in the $30-million renovation of the 181 rooms and suites inside Caesars’ Centurion Tower. “If I see anything that doesn’t feel right or is working against what it should be, I tell everyone we have to rethink that,” De Niro is quoted as saying by the Review-Journal.
The new hotel will feature bathrooms with teak fittings, stone tile and sleek modern fixtures, oversized walk-in showers, multiple showerheads and a teak bathing stool, an in-room minibar with unique selections such as organic wild poppy blood orange chili juice, Japanese beer and Nobu’s signature brands of chilled sake and Genmai-Cha brown-rice green tea.
The hotel, which is expected to open in January, will include a nearly 13,000-sq.-ft. restaurant and lounge.
